Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

The purpose of this study was to assess the ability of whole-body turbo short tau inversion recovery (STIR) MR imaging to detect metastases in children with small cell tumors and to compare its performance with that of conventional imaging.

CONCLUSION:

Early data suggest that whole-body turbo STIR MR imaging is as reliable as other conventional imaging studies for staging newly diagnosed small cell tumors in pediatric patients.
